Azmi & Associates is pleased to announce that our Co-Deputy Managing Partner, YM Raja Dato’ Ahmad Mohzanuddin Shah Raja Mohzan has been appointed as a member of the Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC) Advisory Council for a two-year term, effective 1 April 2021.

The Government had agreed to appoint a 13-member advisory council for the AIAC, led by former Chief Justice, YABhg.
